School bus drivers are expected to be extra careful because they are driving kids to and from their school.
Fortunately, the Poway Unified School District bus that was involved in a recent accident was just on it way to pick-up children from school so no one, aside from the driver, was on the bus.
The 63-year-old driver was reportedly heading to Russet Leaf Lane near Deer Canyon Elementary School when it sideswiped a parked vehicle. The driver may have panicked and over-corrected as he steered away from the vehicle. But unfortunately, he lost control of the school bus as it went up and down an embankment.
The bus then hit trees and crossed traffic lanes before hitting a vehicle occupied by a mother and her daughter. The bus crashed into the garage door of an empty house.
The mother and daughter were thankfully uninjured and was not taken to a hospital.
The unidentified driver, however, sustained minor injuries from the accident.
There are a lot of factors to be considered in this bus accident so the local authorities are still conducting an investigation.
